Outer space. A time after the past and before the future, a rogue astro bandit named Jack Tiraquon has uncovered a relic from the long lost vaults of groove, floating freely in space. The creator, known as Mr. 8040, is said to have been a high ranking Space Dimension Controller in the quadra-sector of the Tiraquon6 security barrier, but legend tells of Mr. 8040 occasionally losing his mind and breaking out in a frenzy of galactic funk. These frenzies were recorded and are now presented to you... ( 1 reviews ) Topics: electro, techno, galactic funk, acroplane, boxcutter, filaria, monolith
Koen Park gets all political in his old age. Don't let that put you off tho! He's delivered another amazing record free of charge. "The idea that our lives revolve around computers so much is depressing and a little soul destroying. Inanimate objects essentially controlling what should be the animate. The more we get into the internet social cycle, the less we actually are part of a healthy society. This is the personal level. Government, poorly run as is nearly always the case, controls...

Chris Cook is happy to make three new Same Actor pieces of music available through the Acroplane Net-Label. The three tracks on this EP come from the same paranoid, fragile world of sitar, guitar and software patches as his recent "The End of the Garden" EP on London label Disco_r.dance.

Koen Park is the work of Ian D Hawgood. Working between his small apartment in Tokyo and his mum's garage in south London, he makes washed out electro-hip-hop -pop-folk-shoegaze music. Pastoral Pioneer was made with circuit bent casios, drums, piano, field recordings, melodica, harmonium, warbly old tape recorders and musical smarts. The results are both unique and wonderful.

The 3rd EP by New York sound development artist, Tidy Kid. Tidy Kid is a fictional musical character, conceptualized to help push innovative musical experimentations in the hope of a new outlook and philosophy on life and the brain's relationship with ones spirit. In other words, concept driven sound projects, which urge your views to push through modern trends. It currently sounds a bit like electronica. This music was taken from Tidy Kid's Performance Fragments DVD, remixed and re-packaged.... ( 1 reviews ) Topics: electronica, improvisation, live, new york,concept, strange, tidy kid, acroplane
David Baxter aka Filaria aka Reaktor Meltman Extraordinaire (not a real alias :D) has been melting heads with hectic acid inflected synthetic music that's equally crammed with ideas and emotion for a long time now, and not content with this has started incorporating clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and probably about thirteen other instruments into his tracks and live shows. These new tracks show how far he's come from his precocious beginnings, and are further reason for fans of experimental... ( 2 reviews ) Topics: Downtempo, IDM, Electronica
'The 3rd Chapter EP' is the first release from eN, a budding laptop musician from London, currently studying Music Informatics in Brighton. Pairing the alluring qualities of atmospheric breaks and harsh edited Jungle rhythms with washed out synthetic soundscapes and deep bass, it walks the line between the tranquil and intense. A founding partner of the No-Test collective and the infamous Erisian Discharge night’s, eN has been an up and coming force to watch out for, for some time now....

This is a joint release between ourselves and another fine netlabel called 'The Centrifuge' - http://www.thecentrifuge.co.uk "The EP begins with the reversed sound of the ending of the 2005 album, representative of a return to the ideals of my "proper" music. You might say "That's one hell of an opening sentence, I haven't even heard of you, what's more you're putting words in my mouth. You've created this fictitious character which is an unfair portrayal of me, and now you... Topics: electronica, idm, jungle, ambient
An Ambient/Lo-Fi EP from Belfast's RL/VL. At only 18 years of age he has already amassed a respectable catalogue, with releases on labels such as Hidden Shoal, Sounds Asleep and now Acroplane. You can also expect a more beat driven 2nd release on Acroplane fairly soon, but for now we think that this little ambient workout works as a nice precursor to it. "All the tracks were created between June and October in 2007. Originally all composed in Ableton and Reason. I've put the tracks onto...

Matthew Peters (aka Mad EP) has been influenced by Bach's 'Well-Tempered Klavier' and Shostakovich's '24 preludes and fugues' for years, and so decided to do something similar for the breakbeat. Like Bach & Shostakovich, originally the project was supposed to be a composition exercise to compose a breakbeat in every major & minor key, but soon it really hooked him and he ran with it, trying to offer as much diversity as he could while still having the group make sense as a whole....

"This was originally released as a 3" CD on October Man Recordings in two editions; green (first) and gold (second), on the 5th of July 2008. I remembered reading that Ian had planned to re-release it as mp3s at some stage, so I had to get in there and acquire it for Acroplane. It's the 1st Koen Park music I encountered, and is still probably my fav of his releases, although i've enjoyed everything i've heard to date. Melodic Electronica as good as any i've heard. So yeah, enjoy.... Topics: melodic, electronica, koen park, ambient
Molez is based out in Subotica, Serbia, and is a member of the Symptom Crew, an organisation devoted to pushing diverse electronic music. His dubstep productions are characterized by deep, sci-fi soundscapes. You can check out some more of his music on Digital Distortions, Dubkraft and Rottun Recordings. Artwork by Noiz. Mastered by Alex Lennon.
Some new atmospheric dubtronics and such from Wahn, on a slightly different tangent than before. "I didn't want to stick to the dark and rough soundscapes of The Secret Tapes (Acroplane ACP059), so I tried to produce something much easier to listen to. It's a kind of tribute to old space theme based video games like the Space Quest saga, Elite or Captain Blood. A friend of mine told me that the EP was making him thinking of Western fights like the Ennio Morricone ones. 2 men standing in...
"Here's some music I been doing, I don't know what to say about it, so I present a missive from the desk of the Mothers Against Noise press officer: 'Hurtdeer is a tireless campaigner against the senseless racket of our age. In this anthology of campfire songs and bedtime ditties both rousing and comforting, joyous and mournful, Hurtdeer delivers gentle parables for the modern Mother and Housewife. How does one balance a loving relationship with the ever-growing list of...
I approach the tracks like they’re each little creatures, with their own ways of moving and interacting with the environment around them. Each one is supposed to have a certain personality or feel which is in some way distinct from the others. However, by virtue of them all being grown from the same broad gene pool they feel related to each other, sharing in the environmental pressures from the world around them. All the tracks on this album were made over the last year and a half or so. They...
The debut album from Red Box Recorder makes a statement of intent. Setting his sights on nothing less than world domination and political hegemony, this London-based producer uses the medium of wonky electronica to indoctrinate the masses. Ranging from ravetastic workouts to meditative soundscapes, and embracing everything in between, this is music designed to surprise, delight and induce total brain meltdown – for free! The emphasis here is not on technical wizardry but composition - a... Topics: electronica, dubstep, ambient, breakbeat, red box recorder, acroplane
Blake Market (aka Black Market, Zark Behida, Blakkar Noir) re-emerges with an album of utterly up-front, forward-looking hard drum n'bass. Based on a far-flung concept inspired by the natural grandeur of the Boreal Forests of his homeland, this release is certain to please lovers of both old-school techstep and drill n' bass alike (to the exclusion of pretty much everybody else! - ed). Seriously though, it's well good. Pounding, splintered odd-meter breakbeats and thoroughly Canadian nature...

"I first bumped into Icky Sticky through my work on the Amen-talist compilation (as he is one of their crew) and was soon impressed by his original and pretty uncompromising take on Jungle, Dubtronics and Electronica. So, I offered him a release slot here at Acroplane and this is the result" Paul ACP Recs 7 tracks total.
The brothers John and Paul Healy, collectively known throughout the world as Somatic Responses, are still native residents of a small industrial mining community snugly located in the southwest region of Wales. Somatic Responses are into complex dislocated & broken beats, distorted intelligent constructions, fascinating sonic structures, force and sweetness intertwined. If their early productions were of the hardcore and techno kind, and while they later moved on to breakcore territories,... Topics: dubstep, techno, electronica, somatic responses, acroplane, dark
The Electrotoxic netlabel launch kicks off with the first release from label boss Clive Kells. Stimpack gets things going with its deep pads and probing beats, hinting towards a mix of a sci-fi soundtrack and some earlier Detroit electronics while, like most of Clive's tracks, still delivering plenty of emotion as it skips between half timing and a busier 130bpm noodling. Embedded has an air of the mighty Monolake around it, again warm atmospheric pads peppered with a popping meandering digi... Topics: Downtempo, IDM, Electronica
Chevron - BN1 4GB One afternoon, in the waiting room of a needle exchange, I watched afternoon telly and bashed out four new tracks. Individually, in one take, I recorded them live onto tape. Outside, methadone addicts argued ferociously about hardcore lager and fed a dog raw steak. Inside, an over sensitive monster vented at the imagined scent of a tofu passanda. Acroplane now present you a small slice of my life, down and around BN1 4GB. Artwork by Piratio. Topics: acid, roland, techno, electronica
A remix LP of one of Acroplane and Net-audio's biggest releases of 2008, 'Vertical67 - Reflect'.

Vertical67's Reflect LP is also still available for free download from Acroplane. Highly recommended. Topics: electronica, acid, jungle, ambient, acroplane
Portals is the debut LP by Venezuela's Lastrapink. Years ago he was impressed by the acid underground music that was brought to Venezuela from London, and so so decided to travel to the UK to learn English and to perform his own music in various UK parties and clubs. Soon after he made the jump to Berlin to work with people such as Phlex, Vertical 67 and the Hasenland krew, and to play alongside such luminaries as Plaid, Jega and Modeselektor at RockPaperScissor parties. Since then he has also... Topics: acid, breaks, electro, jungle
Dubliner Dubreak returns with his long awaited 2nd release on Acroplane. 7 tracks of varied dub fuelled electronica..with a concept, influencing how the tracks were made... Water. From early memories as a little kid of it seeping into and breaking a cool solar powered watch that I thought would last me my lifetime, to midnight snorkeling with phosphorescence. From it leaking into my tent at festivals, into my sleeping bag. To it somehow finding it's way from the shower through the floorboards...

‘Passing’, a collection of music recorded between 2003 & 2006. "A seductive amniotic experience" - Belfast Telegraph. Like scores for little unmade films or little moments in time, Brian's compositions move through far-reaching sonic landscapes filled with simple melodies, complex beats and hanging chords, both unexpected and beautiful! An individual voice, distinctive, striking, alluring. Topics: ambient, melodic, beautiful, electronica, acroplane, belfast
The 1st release of several on Acroplane by underground Hip Hop Don Mad EP (Ad Noiseam Records, Hymen Records), this record including support from Cdatakill (Ad Noiseam), Shadow Huntaz (Skam) and Larvae (Ad Noiseam). High-end headphone music for the wee hours of the morning, inspired by walking around NYC and Chicago - a reflection of those times - the people out at 3 or 4 in the morning are different creatures than those you see at 12 or 1.

Our 2nd release from Dublin's Ewan Hennelly, aka Herv. In recent years he has become one of Ireland's best-known electronic musicians, amassing a considerable catalogue of releases on labels both at home and abroad. Check out his live show if you get the chance. While much of his recorded output concerns itself with complex melodic and percussive interplay, his live sets lean more towards the harder end of the electronic spectrum, mixing chaotic chip tunes alongside breakcore and gabba. In the... Topics: electronica, chiptune, acroplane
The 1st release on Acroplane by Lackluster. 'One of a kind' is the expression, which best describes the Finnish electronic music auteur Esa Ruoho, regardless whether we are talking about the organic quality of his music under the artist name Lackluster or just the artist himself in his private life. Esa Ruoho is truly an original; a homegrown and uncompromising composer and an eccentric explorer of science and nature. The Cold Trail EP is Esa at his melodic best.

"One of the most fascinating things about electronic music is the rate at which things change; genres can emerge and disappear within a matter of months, years can often represent generations of influence. Unlike many artists who can't see the beach for the palm trees, Blake Market cheekily winks at current trends. Rather than blindly leaping aboard a bandwagon with no known nautical destination, he decides it's best to chill out and devote the day to rigging up the yacht in a proper...
Fresh from his successes on Planet-Mu, Barry has given us this nice little slice from his past. From Barry - "I made Koss, 98 Loop and Rhodes Draft in 1998 right after I got my first PC for doing tunes on. I was heavily into DJ Shadow so I wanted to try putting tracks together from samples of old vinyl, which I already had a decent sized collection of thanks to my Dad. I also spent ages going through all the record shops in Belfast looking for old jazz and soundtracks and stuff like that...

Loom's second album is a childish little bastard. Just turn on your Fisher Price Cassette-Recorder and let your mind wander to the first time you played with fire. Or when you swiped your little brother's matchbox cars. It's all hidden between the stumbling beats and the squeaky little melodys. And remember: you don't have to like this music, you have to nurture it! Don't let it cock a snook at you!
This is a joint release with Dublin net-label, Armed Ambitions/Organised Ideas. Ewan Hennelly, aka Herv, has become one of Ireland's best-known electronic musicians over the past number of years, amassing a considerable catalogue of releases on labels both at home and abroad. Herv’s music is a frantic swarm of 8-bit melody and syncopated percussion, punctuated by warm wind instrument and layered violin and cello lines.

The 2nd LP from Berlin's Vertical67. His last album, 'Reflect' remains among the most popular ACPs to this day, but this one certainly tops it, feeling more like a complete album. The themes are similar, at times uplifting and psychedelic, others dark and melancholic, but his production has come on a long way. In our opinion, this LP deserves to rank with the best of 2009, and is certainly among the best Acroplane releases to date. Artwork by Holger Patz and Stefan Kirste. Mastered by DOC NO...

"Music To Fall Off Yer Bike To" is the first harvest of farmed Bluebottlage. It has received high critical acclaim from folk who were once master cyclists and who now spend their days gazing wistfully through hospital windows; attentively tuned to the anthems of those tragic moments when bicycle, headphones and traffic cones collide, and the gentle clink of emptied bedpans.

A Google German translation of 'Wahn' would say "delusion/insanity, something that seems to refer to psychiatric troubles", although Wahn does not have any mental illness (yet). Although he is French, Germany has definitely had an influence on his sound, Sven Vath and Carsten Jancker especially...errrrrr, well they would maybe have had some if he had continued to listen to Hardfloor while smoking and drinking...

Our knackered mate Is currently spending his days eating packets of sugar under a bridge, a fitting end, Really.
